Beautiful imagery, fine storytelling and impressive martial arts sequences set Zhang Yimou's epic in class of its own. Action, romance and history are deftly mixed to examine the nature of the hero and its relation to Chinese nationalism. Set deep in China's past, when the country was divided into seven warring states, Hero follows in flashback the shifting accounts made to an emperor by a nameless warrior (Jet Li) who claims to have killed three indestructible assassins (Tony Leung, Maggie Cheung and Donnie Yen). Yimou's use of color is extraordinary and the many action sequences, including one in which Cheung and Li deflect thousands of arrows in a whirlwind of hands and motions, set a new standard. Also stars actress Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). In Mandarin with English subtitles.
